Do be sure to watch this video news clip on CNBC, folks
The first part of the video news clip (h/t Paul Waldman), by CNBC correspondent Eamon Javers, is smoking-gun stunning. And sickening. Just watch the video or read the accompanying article.
The second part of it, which is a clip of White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, sure seems to me that for all his hesitation and careful wording, Earnest hints that Obama will fire Comey right after the election.
As for me, I want to forcefully retract my suggestion in this post yesterday that NYC FBI agents working on the Weiner case may have planted the emails of Weiner’s computer.
When I wrote that post, the reporting was that the emails at issue numbered about 1,000. Today it is reported that they number in the tens of thousands—a number almost certainly not within the capacity of investigative FBI agents who are not computer forensics experts to gain access to and put onto a hard drive without it being obvious that that is what happened. And it’s also now been reported that the agents knew of the emails on the laptop shortly after they took custody of it; the emails were on the hard drive shortly after the FBI took custody of it.
I wrote that post in reaction to the report early yesterday that Abedin has told friends and colleagues that she does not know how the emails came to be on Weiner’s personal computer–something that rings awfully likely to be true, given the enormous number of her personal emails that are now on Weiner’s personal computer.
I wrote here today that in light of today’s information, it appears far more likely that it was Russia that pulled this off than that it was an FBI-agent job.
The Oct. 7 report issued jointly by the NSA and Homeland Security Department stating their conclusion that Russia is responsible for the massive hacks of emails of the Democratic Nationals Committee, Clinton campaign officials and other organizations connected to Clinton or the Democratic Party, and was done with the intent to disrupt the national election—which is the focus of the CNBC report and is quoted in the video—has received almost no attention from the press.
That, I trust, will change now. Oh, the irony.
Although, of course, you never know.
So Clinton and the Democrats should run ads showing that CNBC clip. Big ad buys for it on the internet and TV would be good.
And BTW, the CNBC little bombshell nails it that Harry Reid was right about Comey and the Hatch Act, in my opinion.
The problem with all this discussion is that the “facts” keep changing. We’re dealing with mostly anonymous sources for these articles.
That anonymous source was probably Reid.
All these sources suck.
CNBC ? Seriously They still think of Alan Greenspan as a great man , the go to network for awful financial tips. Right now they are probably saying to go long Samsung .
Harry Reid ? Voice like nails on a chalkboard , also easily as corrupt as the Clinton crime family although the dollar amounts are lower. Fun fact , often mistaken for the evil emperor from the star wars movies
Paul Krugman ? Washed up hack , perennial Clinton bootlicker
Clinton lies like the rest of us breathe air. Huma lied about the laptop , she works for Hillary so by definition has to be a liar , also she married Carlos Danger , which shows how bad her judgement is , and is still married to him which is baffling and is why this is happening .
I’d lay odds on the theory that these emails are on that laptop as an insurance policy and/or future blackmail. Everyone that works around Clintons probably has a similar cache which may or may not be queued up to dump in case they commit suicide under mysterious circumstances. I think the term is a “deaddrop”
Start getting accustomed to the concept of “president Trump” remember how we got here, the DNC cheated us out of a Sanders win in the primary who would have won easily in the general.
Rather than just blogging out in random acts of irrationality would it not be better to listen to get better information to draw and speak conclusions from? It is becoming much more evident that Comey made a mistake not to suggest indictment the first time around. Then he made another mistake to say that he would inform or update the congress, although he did do right to reopen the case if new and pertinent information came about and it did. Reopening the case was his job to do and nothing more, that is it. Then rest of the story now is to do a “proper” investigation and for the DOJ to do their job which will not happen as Loretta Lynch is bed with HRC all the way to the White House. Do not expect any “justice” to be served from the DOJ unless you are a unlicensed dog catcher under a HRC DOJ…You getting what you vote for is more true today than ever…So remember if HRC wins and enacts the no fly zone in Syria as she has said(perhaps that is also a lie) how long before Russia violates and she starts the false flag war with Russia?
Thank you Bronco for the insightful and meaningful comment that to me reflects more truth and logic than the broken clock analysis of many HRC supporters. It really baffles me that so many choose a blind eye to the many HRC BS, lies deception and abuses. The election is suppose to be about leadership, trust, integrity ,pride, honor and respect for our country and the American peoples needs. HRC has none of these traits and should never be chosen as the leader of our great country. She is a total fraud and sham artist…In my family my fathers were both war hero’s who upheld strong personal values of which HRC has none. One father was in Normandy on D-day, the other was in Iwo Jima. Need I say more what it means to me to be a great American? HRC represents nothing of the past of what it means to be a great American in my book. To me HRC has actually disgraced our great country and what it truly stands for…
Comey didn’t make a mistake in not recommending indictment. He knew there was no prosecutable case and said so in no uncertain terms. His mistake was in giving his sermon about the investigation instead of simply making his recommendation to DOJ as he was supposed to.
